about

This song came about after I saw the movie "Beasts of No Nation." It is a strongly anti-war piece, but could extend to anti-conflict as well. "Eye for an eye" quote from Aristotle. More notes to come.

lyrics

Paralyzed

Someone wake me, I'm in a dream
I'm somewhere I have never seen
Who are you and who am I?
I can't just erase my mind

Someone help me, I want to scream
But I'm paralyzed with fear
This is someone else's dream
I don't know why I'm here

They say fight fire with fire
But then it never goes out
Because an eye for an eye
Makes the world go blind

This is who vs. who?
Is it me vs. you?
What are we trying to prove?
We are both going to lose
